Need Help Identifying This Plec!

ChrisTheFishkeeper2004

HI guys so I just went out to my LFS and got a Pleco... I asked the man what type and he said that he had no idea because they had just came in... /: if it is a common Plec then I will be giving him to my friend who has a 500 gallon tank with other common Plec is. My tank is a 75 gallon but I do have smaller Cory’s and shrimp and having something over 12 inches isn’t ideal for my other fish. Could someone here please identify the cute little guy?

it looks like a Common Pleco, mine is about 1.5 inches but he looks slightly more round headed than yours. I am pretty sure it is

It is a type of common pleco, they can range from 12-24 inches in the home aquarium, they need more than algae in their diet because they are not algae eaters.
It is not a smaller common pleco either it should reach at least 14 inches with a large enough tank and care.
